N class routers

I am currently waiting for an N class router to arrive and just wanted to ask does xbox 360 and windows vista laptops work with an N class router

An N class router should also be backwards compatible with b and g wireless standards. Therefore if the wireless adaptor in the laptop or XBox isn't up to N standard then they will connect but not be able to take advantage of the the N standard.

I assume that you have a XBox 360 wireless adaptor. Is it N standard? Which laptop? Many are capable of N. It doesn't depend on Vista but the hardware.

the xbox 360 has built in wireless it's one of the latest that were made last year and the laptop is an acer 5738z

From what I can find the Acer has N standard. The XBox probably has too.
